Based on ”Lao-tzu” and the Four Chapters of ”Kuan-tzu”, this article tries to explore the epistemological perspectives of the Way in Taoism and to interpret that ”knowing the Way” is a mode of embodied knowing. First of all, I analyze the epistemological perspectives of ”Wu” in ”Lao-tzu” and point out that ”knowing the Way” is a mode of tacit knowledge and a practice sense or an orientation in the situation that I participate. And then, I elucidate how to response the question of possibility of ”knowing the Way” and how to know through Ch'i in the Four Chapters of ”Kuan-tzu”.
